Se7en to officially debut in US on March 4

After so many promotional activities (false starts) last year, Se7en (25) is set to officially grab the American public by the horns on March 4.

Whoo ho--Oh, forget it. We don’t really care anymore.

"Debut": Se7en is all set to face the American public...we hope

A YG Entertainment rep revealed that the 3-month delay in Se7en’s American “debut” is due to the fact that time was needed to raise the quality of his debut song Girls. Yeah, right…I’m not buying that, mister.

We’ve heard Girls since May 2008. What are they planning to do? Invite an entire orchestra to play on it?

The YG Ent rep also said that the MV for Girls, which features rapper Lil’ Kim (big yawn), will be released simultaneously on March 4 in America, Korea and Japan.

Se7en’s English track Girls was written by producer Dark Child who has worked with…blah, blah, blah.

Do what you want to do now Se7en, but we hope you’ll stop flirting with club appearances in US and return to South Korea soon to continue your (more interesting & newsworthy) activities there.

Frankly, it’s a disappointment to hear you spouting supercilious lyrics such as:
Trying make you my accessory (yeah)
All girls are necessary (yeah)
Like Will I’m Legend, feel me
You can Google me, baby

Blech. Your loyal fans deserve better.

Se7en!! Finally, but I'm not even excited anymore. Everytime time I was excited, it was a let-down. I'll still support him but I'm already tired of his song "Girls". I wish he would come out with some songs like his korean songs that actually has deep meanings.

세븐씨, 고국으로 돌아가요! 네? 계속 미국에 체류하지마세요...

What's he doing in the States anyway! Get back to Korea!

Tyler said...

Go home Se7en otherwise the fans will go Se7en who?

Trying to break through american's market is not a bad idea, but do they really need songs like that.. I dont really like BoA's 'eat you up'.. heard it was in the billboard chart tho.. I think they should sing a decent song. Grab the americans attention by their talent first (if they really have it)..

^o^ said...

debuting in us was a huge mistake. he should just stay in korea and produce more good music

아이스Aiseu said...

he took too long for the album..I have lost half of the interest about that....

Even the dis-loyal fans deserve better than that! Remember in the Passion video, when he blew up? Too bad that was just a video effect! BoA's having a hard time breaking into this market, with her looks, and talent, and he's going to try to enter here, with lyrics like THAT? And YES he has been around a little too long, to be trying to slay this place.

somehow i knew Liz wrote this one ^^ Well i think he did need to rework the song because his accent was a bit obvious.

Tofu TIMES said...

he should have used "money can't buy me love" as the debut song... i dont even know if thats the correct song title. anyway, i hope he gets something out of this debut. i hope he makes it.

BoA and Se7en have nothing new to offer to the American music market, other than the fact that they're Asian. Remember Utada Hikaru tried to break into the American market? And she was perfect in English, but she didn't do very well.

Vic in Long Beach, CA said...

I agree Lucy, but it makes me wonder what they're doing wrong. Remember in LA's K-Town there is a population that is ONE SEVENTH the size of S.Korea! If only one in five bought the CD, it would be one of the most popular of all time. But they aren't.
Was Bob Marley all that radical? And if so, how many "blue grass" groups can you name. (MAYBE I can name three... only because I've done technical stuff for concerts.) Blue grass is certainly "radical" music. I dunno.

Hello all,

Yeah, the American market is a particularly tough one to crossover into. Remember Robbie Williams of UK (formerly of Take That) also tried to break into the US market?

Nothing much came out of that too.

kpop-rubba said...

Robbie Williams had moderate success about 10 years ago. Since then, not so much. Well Americans are EXTREMELY FICKLE. I suggest a good pay for play deal and anything can be a radio hit. The radio will shove it down people's throats till they are FORCED to like it.

Jenny said...

The problem with Utada hikaru was there was no promotion and the fact that they saw her as Japan's Britney Spears. But she is planning on releasing a new english album this spring. Boa and Se7en will have another competitioner, Teriyaki boyz are releasing a album in the us and they are working with artists like Kanye West and Pharrell.

Know what? I'm glad Se7en is in the USA. All you Asian fans got to have him for years. What about fans in America? You guys all just willing to say "screw you!" to the fans in America? We deserve an equal shot to have Se7ens Music here in the US. And if the producers think this is the best way to get his name known, then let them do their job. Once his name is more widespread and out there, he can sing about whatever he wants. The job first is to get his name known. There is a reason why Se7en was liked so much in all of Asia. And he needs to prove what that reason is the the Americans.
